National Library's Services to Schools offers support to schools by providing extra books through a Reading Together® programme loan, and professional advice and support to help the programme succeed in your school.
If your school or Community of Learning | Kāhui Ako is implementing or thinking of implementing the Reading Together® programme, you may also be interested in the National Library’s Services to Schools Reading Together® programme loans.
Reading Together® programme loans are separate and in addition to Services to Schools loans to support reading engagement and inquiry. Reading Together® programme loans are tailored to the requirements of your Reading Together® workshops and the books can also be used by participants at home.
Reading Together® programme loans are free and there is no charge for overdue or lost books.
To request a loan, Phone 0800 LIB LINE (0800 542 5463).
National Library facilitators can also provide advice on how your school library can support and help sustain the benefits of the Reading Together® programme through the school library and the ongoing development of a school-wide reading culture.
If you would like some advice about supporting the Reading Together® programme in your school library and/or about developing a school-wide reading culture, please contact the National Library Capability Facilitators on 0800 LIB LINE (0800 542 5463).
